YGG Tay – Rich Before Rap Review

There is nothing in this project to suggest that YGG Tay is going to be a hit in Hip Hop. He simply comes across as another dealer thinking he can rap, or a wannabe drug dealer with the same thoughts. He needs to show he is superior to the rest of the wannabes to be considered a threat in the rap game.

The production is alright but with no groundbreaking areas that really impress. There are a lot of generic trap beats that are entertaining simply because of the energy involved in them but there is nothing particularly special about them. There are no signature sounds involved by any particularly adept producer which leaves this project lacking luster.

The lyricism is barely perceptible over the poor delivery. There are some lyrical techniques used to make it slightly more appealing but Tay needs to bring up his delivery so that the bars are harder hitting and any clever lyrics involved actually land harder than they currently do.

The features are alright but are in the same vein as YGG Tay which only leaves a different voice with the same type of rap. This is unfortunate as the features only show that there are others out there like YGG Tay and not that Tay is better than them. If Tay wants to improve, he needs other rappers to compete against for best on the tracks.

Overall, this is a poor project to show what YGG Tay is capable of and is a disappointing mixtape. Tay has a long way to go if he wants to become more of a household name or even have a widely acceptable style of rap.
